New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Firefox 10.0.x is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An off-by-one error exists in the 'OpenType Sanitizer' which can lead to out-bounds-reads and possible code execution. (CVE-2011-3062)

- Memory safety issues exist that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-0467)

- A use-after-free error exists related to 'IDBKeyRange' of 'indexedDB'. (CVE-2012-0469)

- Heap-corruption errors exist related to 'gfxImageSurface' that could lead to possible code execution. (CVE-2012-0470)

- A multi-octet encoding issue exists that could allow cross-site scripting attacks as certain octets in multibyte character sets can destroy following octets.
(CVE-2012-0471)

- An error exists related to font rendering with 'cairo- dwrite' that can cause memory corruption leading to crashes and potentially code execution. (CVE-2012-0472)

- An error exists in 'WebGLBuffer' that could lead to the reading of illegal video memory. (CVE-2012-0473)

- An unspecified error could allow URL bar spoofing.
(CVE-2012-0474)

- A decoding issue exists related to 'ISO-2022-KR' and 'ISO-2022-CN' character sets that could lead to cross- site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0477)
- An error exists related to 'WebGL' and 'texImage2D' that could allow application crashes and possibly code execution when 'JSVAL_TO_OBJECT' is used on ordinary objects. (CVE-2012-0478)

- Address bar spoofing is possible when 'Atom XML' or 'RSS' data is loaded over HTTPS leading to phishing attacks. (CVE-2012-0479)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 10.0.4 ESR or later.
